Stephen Christopher McGann is also my great grandfather.He was born
In. County Meath.His father was John McGann and he was one of six brothers/sisters.I recall my mother saying he was the black sheep of the family but that one of his sisters was Mother Superior of a religious order in
the U.S.A. He married Mary lAnne Benson.They had four children-James,
Mary,Marcella and JaneMaria. James and Mary were born in Butterstream,Navan.My auntie Beryl on a visit to Ireland noted the following
In the Grimms Birth Registry(13 Mar,1882-at Butterstream Navan, birth of
Mary McGann,daughter of Stephen McGann and Mary Anne Benson.
Registered 6 April,1882) James and Mary were both born in Navane
Ireland..Marcella (my grand-mother was born in Hobart,Tasmania on 25
May,1885 after they had emigrated to Australia.Mary Anne died in child-
birth together with their fourth child Jane Maria.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
